Taiwan Tours – Best Time to Visit Taiwan
Winter (December-February) probably is ideal for those who like it cool and enjoy bathing in hot springs. Taiwan’s climate is subtropical while the southern tip of the island including Kenting National Park is considered tropical.
March to early May is high season for tourism and it can get very hot in late May.
In the summer (June-August) anywhere you go except in the mountains you’ll experience intense heat and humidity. This is the season you should avoid if you can.
Autumn (late September – November) is high season when sky is blue and the weather turns dry and cool.
Taiwan Tours – Typhoon Season
Technically typhoon can hit Taiwan any time between June and September. However, it is in August and the first half of September when the intensity of typhone reaches its peak. Consider staying away from Taiwan in August and the first half of September.
Taiwan Tours – Public Holidays to Avoid
The single biggest public holiday is the Chinese spring festival. Also called Chinese New Year holiday, this is a traditional festival based on Chinese lunar calendar. Consequently, it changes from year to year. It can fall on any day between mid-January and late February, generally speaking. This is the time of year when everybody is the mood of family reunion. The holiday for most people lasts over weeks. If you are in Taiwan during this time, you’ll noticed that most businesses remain closed for days while highways, airports and train stations are overcrowded.
